American Thinker: The Cemeteries of Holy Week

Pastor T. S. Weidler has written a short essay at American Thinker – The Cemeteries of Holy Week – about the ongoing violence against Christians especially during the Lent and Easter season.

It is clockwork. Virtually every year you can count on it. Holy Week is the most dangerous week of the year to be a Christian.

It is the week in which Jesus was killed, and it should surprise no one that his followers are killed that same week, every single year, in droves.

This year the big attack was Resurrection Sunday in Sri Lanka of course. The numbers keep climbing upward, and the more details that come out only add to the horror of it.

But don’t forget the Palm Sunday attack in Numa, Nigeria last week in which 17 were killed.

You didn’t hear about that one?

It happened. It happened at a baby dedication. The mother is dead, the father is in critical condition.

The news media, who did not tell you about it, would like you to learn more about Pete Buttigieg.

Last year was a slight anomaly from the pattern, with relatively few attacks during Holy Week itself. It was the broader season of Lent, which kicked off in Nigeria with two separate attacks totaling 32 Christians killed, and churches burned on February 27. On Palm Sunday in Burewala, Pakistan, seven were wounded when terrorists attacked a church. A week later, on Easter Sunday in Quetta, Pakistan four were machine gunned to death…

Washington Examiner: Start Prepping! Electric Grid ‘Prime Target’

The Washington Examiner has a short article up summarizing the findings of a recent 90+ page National Infrastructure Advisory Council report on Catastrophic Power Outage Start prepping! Electric grid ‘prime target’ of terrorists, ‘profound threat,’ says council.

In a new report that warns that the electric grid is the “prime target” of terrorists, Americans are being urged prepare for the up to six months without electricity, transportation, fuel, money, and healthcare.

“People no longer keep enough essentials within their homes, reducing their ability to sustain themselves during an extended, prolonged outage. We need to improve individual preparedness,” said a just-published report to President Trump.

“There needs to be more individual accountability for preparedness,” adds the report, “Surviving a Catastrophic Power Outage,” from the President’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council and published by the Department of Homeland Security.

It looked at the potential of a power outage of up to six months and recommended Americans have enough supplies on hand for a minimum 14 days, a standard for some prepper organizations.

“Build a Culture of Preparedness includes objectives to incentivize investments that reduce risk, including pre-disaster mitigation; closing the insurance gap; helping people prepare for disasters; and better learn from past disasters, improve continuously, and innovate,” said a key recommendation… A prior governmental report also called for presidential action to protect the grid. That report warned of a threat to world order in an attack…

Some of those warnings from the report are below:

  • Given the growing frequency and severity of disasters and other risks, there needs to be an increase in individual accountability, enterprise, and community investment in resilient infrastructure.
  • There is a misconception that events occur infrequently.
  • There needs to be more individual accountability for preparedness.
  • Resilience at the state and local level will be critical to enable people to shelter in place and facilitate faster recovery. Any event that requires a mass evacuation will use up critical resources, clog transportation pathways, and reduce the workforce necessary for infrastructure recovery.
  • Electricity, fuel, clean drinking water, wastewater services, food/refrigeration, emergency medical services, communications capabilities, and some access to financial services have been identified as critical lifeline services that would be needed to sustain local communities and prevent mass migration.

Suarez – The “REAL” Solution To Jihadist Knife Attacks

From trainer Gabe Suarez of Suarez International, comes this article The “REAL” Solution To Jihadist Knife Attacks about how to prepare for possible attacks.

In this article, which I am certain will upset the “martial arts” guys, I will discuss the reality of facing a jihadist with a knife bent of “stabbing anyone they see”.  I will discuss “The Jihadist Vehicle Attacks” later.

So here we go –

1).  Forget the fantasy of empty hand defenses: 

2).  Instead of going Jackie Chan, use a weapon:

3).  Always be armed no matter the rules:

4). Learn to be violent:

5).  Learn preemption: 


6).  Keep alert:

There are no secret techniques to defend against the knife by physically frail and empty handed males. It takes violence and weapons. And in that order.
